Publisher's Summary

The fifth novel in the acclaimed cult favorite series starring Johannes Cabal, necromancer.
Johannes Cabal, a necromancer of some little infamy, has come into possession of a vital clue that may lead him to his ultimate goal: a cure for death. The path is vague, however, and certainly treacherous as it takes him into strange territories that, quite literally, no one has ever seen before. The task is too dangerous to venture upon alone, so he must seek assistance - comrades for the coming travails.
Assisted - ably and otherwise - by his vampiric brother, Horst, and by the kindly accompaniment of a criminologist and a devil, they will encounter ruins and diableries, mystery and murder, the depths of the lowest pit, and a city of horrors - London, to be exact.
Yet even though Cabal has risked such peril believing he understands the dangers he faces, he is still underestimating them. He is walking into a trap of such arcane complexity that even the one who drew him there has no idea of its true terrors. As it closes slowly and subtly around them, it may be that there will be no survivors at all.

Johnathan Howard Leftovers

Is there anything you would change about this book?

More of a raison d'etre than the lease was up on Mr. Howard's flat.

Would you be willing to try another book from Jonathan L. Howard? Why or why not?

Yes. Johannes Cabal is an engaging character and Mr. Howard is an engaging writer.

Which character – as performed by Nicholas Guy Smith – was your favorite?

Johannes Cabal

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Not this book, but the first two, for sure.

Any additional comments?

I count myself as a Johnathan Howard fan. I have read (or listened to) all of the Cabal novels and most of the short stories, but I found this one to be, well....uninspired. While still being a decent read, it mostly felt like the author was gathering all the players onstage for one last curtain call. Still worthy, but not up to the standard that he set in the first two (or even four) novels. Maybe he's tired of Johannes; I don't know. Doyle grew tired of Sherlock, Butcher has grown tired of Dresden (or so he says), Raymond Burr once said that Perry Mason robbed him of the best years of his life. I never underestimate the power of people to bite the hand that feeds them.
